|Abstract:||The development of a technique of electrical stimulation to release secretions from the dermal macroglands of anurans has permitted analysis of the secretions of numerous species without the need to kill the subjects. Sequential photography of the process, involving stimulation of the parotoid glands of the cane toad, Bufo marinus, demonstrates the temporal characteristics. Liberation of the secretions commences after five seconds and maximum discharge is attained after 25 s.|
